World Book Day
Open Center Visit
The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the open center. They listened enthusiastically to the different members of staff who made the experience both educational and engaging. Highlights of the day included trying the food that was shared with us in the Gurdwara, although it was a little spicy for some, and role playing as member of or guests at a Jewish wedding.
Numbers Day 2020
Fibonacci numbers sequence.
The children used excellent reasoning skills to solve and understand this number sequence.
Measure me activity
The children had to find unit and non-unit fractions of an amount whilst also competing in a relay race. It was very challenging but the children worked together in their house teams to succeed at this activity. Well done Foxes!
Stone Age Trip
Fox class had a fantastic day at Derby museum!
We learnt lots of facts about the Stone age, explored ancient artifacts and asked lots of interesting questions.
The children have learnt to make a traditional Brazilian treat Brigadeiro. They were delicious.
We also tasted a range of fruit that was grown in South America: mango, bananas, avocado, passion fruit, blueberries, melon and watermelon.
Before eating the fruit, the children did some observational drawings. We certainly have some super artistic skills in Fox Class.
We even had a South American workout. The children had lots of fun learning and then creating some of their own Zumba routines.
KS2 have been developing their football skills this afternoon. It has been fun to work together in our house teams!
The children are very excited about learning to play the trumpet!
They are very excited about being able to take them home to practice more!
Grey Foxes have been problem solving using loop cards today.
The children were very excited today for our first music lesson. We learned how to keep a beat with our feet, and follow a rhythm with our voices.
We can't wait to start learning a brass instrument!!
Our first day has been very busy. The best part was our Frog Jump problem solving activity.
A special well done to Michael for being the first to solve the problem!
